In my youth, Most of my Childhood was challenging. My Weight was always a issue.I was always told that I was a fat kid, No one else ever told me I was anything else. So I acted like the fat kid I always knew I was a Athlete inside but i was stopped by my own story,but because of my weight issues it was always a struggle to compete & sometimes it was very difficult participating in sport or every day life.However I never gave up on myself & now im flying the flag for all those people who are that little bit different 2the norm & loving it, or have always been told its impossible for them you cant do that. Im a little different because I don't think I will ever get down to a normal healthy weight. I will always be a big guy doing long Distance Endurance events. I look after my self like anyone else. Im doing these events because of the challenges that presents itself before me.These events are extremely difficult for any human being let alone someone who is classified as morbidly obese , but I believe that with the correct support I can give it a go. I love participating in these events but if I can then anyone can, I am not your typical athlete but I will not let my weight issues&the adversity I face get in the way of doing what's important to me or what I love doing.I am asking for your support as i have to complete 12 ironman full event Distances globally in my quest 2earn a direct spot and participate in the Ironman Hawaii World Championships via The Legacy Program. Each Full Ironman Costs for entry alone £450 to £500.
Help me in my Journey 2do what i once thought Impossible by supporting me with the Equipment, Entrance Fees, Travel&Lodge. Thankyou so much for your support.

About the fundraiser

Loving what I do, and pushing to be the best I can be. I found out I had a capacity to push Hard in training several years ago. It started in 2014 with the London Marathon. There’s Bliss in doing what you love and making a difference in your actions.
